Do you do knitwear in Summer?  I am so in love with this Spanish range of handmade knitwear for kids.  These bright and colourful cotton knit sweaters are perfect especially for those cooler Summer days.  Aren’t the colours just gorgeous?  All of these sweaters are unisex and handmade to last so they can be passed down from one sibling to another.    In addition to the sweaters, there are cardigans too and like the sweaters, many have contrasting coloured pockets which are so cute.  The sweaters even come in larger sizes for women.  While I am not in to wearing matching clothes with Anya, I think I would have to make an exception for these cotton sweaters.  Perhaps navy for me and yellow for her.

"knitted baby rompers"Babies wearing little rompers look the cutest.  I’m a big fan of these all in ones for babies, especially the knitted kind.  Here are 5 that I’m loving right now for baby boy or girl:

1.  pale pink shortie with cross back (also comes in grey and a blue-green)…  2.  retro inspired ink blue and cream romper…  3.  ivory romper with pocket…  4.  bunny romper…  5. tomato red baby all in one


Comfy, cosy & chunky…

"chunky knit sweaters for kids"With the weather turning colder I’m turning to one of my favourite daytime looks of chunky knits, skinny jeans and boots.  This season I’m loving Cos for their over-sized knits for me but when it comes to kids, it gets a lot tougher to find chunky jumpers.  The chunky look works well on kids too and besides, it keeps them so warm and cosy.  So I was delighted to find babaa who make these comfy, cosy and snug looking sweaters in lots of bright colours.  The styles are all over-sized for comfort and to allow room for growth and they’re all pretty much unisex so they can be handed down from sibling to sibling.  From Spain, babaa are also soon introducing a line of women’s knits… perfect timing for those cold months ahead of us.

"pink polka dot cushion"This week’s picks for mama & baby… let mama decorate with this polka dotted cushion while baby wears that knitted party hat.

"wooden toys"

My country obsession of the moment is Argentina.  I’ve wanted to visit for as long as I can remember and I’m finally going to Buenos Aires in January (yaay!).  To say I’m excited would be a huge understatement.  Of course I’m madly researching places to see, things to do and most importantly where to shop and eat.  It’s through this research I’ve discovered that not only does the food promise to be an absolute treat but the shopping too sounds amazing as there is some fabulous design coming out of Argentina for both big and little people.  One of my favourite Argentinian discoveries for kids has been these adorable crochet toys.  But now I’ve got another favourite… the wonderful Fanny & Alexander.

"wooden camera toy"

Fanny & Alexander is born out of the notion of good old fashioned play.  They believe that today there are too many battery operated toys, video games and other toys that don’t encourage the child to think for themselves.  So Fanny & Alexander wanted to go back to basics, to toys that encourage a child to be creative, to imagine, to make things up.  And that’s exactly what they’ve done by creating beautiful wooden toys, cute art and stationery, knitted clothes and leather shoes.  Their design is simple, minimal even but with plenty of warmth and lots of beauty.  They’ve chosen a very simple colour palette of natural wood, rusts and greys which just adds to the aesthetic appeal and the warmth.   Just look at those leather ballet shoes… how gorgeous are they?!  And those Llama’s eating their pyjamas… wonderful!  Luckily, they ship internationally so you don’t have to go to Argentina to get these goodies but since I am going,  I will definitely be knocking on Fanny & Alexander‘s door.

Cool chunky knits…

"knitwear for children"

Come the winter months, I love throwing on a chunky knit with a pair of skinny jeans and knee high boots.  It’s an effortless everyday look that works every time.  I wanted to create a mini version of this look for my daughter but finding nice chunky knits for kids proved to be impossible until I stumbled across Cotton and Milk.  A relatively new line of {mainly} knitwear for kids, there is an understated style about these pieces mixed with a touch of vintage which I’m loving.  Created by British designer Justine Glanfield who is based in Brussels, Cotton and Milk make stylish knits for both boys and girls.  Apart from the wonderful clothes, I love the creative way in which they’re presented too.  You can see and buy their current collection over at Line + Liv {a great boutique for kids clothes} or visit Cotton and Milk to see previous collections too.

"dressing up crown"

I have some super exciting news… the lovely folks at Oeuf NYC are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a ‘Wild Things’ crown in the colour of your choice.  You’ll find all the details of how to enter at the bottom of this post.  But first, I’d like to share a preview of Oeuf NYC’s delightful Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.

"knitwear for kids"

When I opened up the Oeuf NYC Fall/Winter 2012 look book my heart skipped a beat.  My eyes feasted on clothes, dressing up goodies and toys that took my breath away.  How can anybody not fall in love with this collection?  The clothes are playful and fun yet infinitely wearable and practical and always complimented by fabulous design. What more could you possibly want from children’s clothes?

 "dressing up clothes kids"

Year after year Oeuf create hugely covetable clothes, toys and nursery furniture and this latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection is no exception.  Their dressing up pieces are also second to none.  Whether your child wants to play wolf or be Santa Claus or even a cat for a day, Oeuf has lots to choose from and all created with bags of style and subtlety yet lots of drama.  I know it’s too early to even mention santa, but I just couldn’t resist picturing the adorable hat and beard combo!

"woollen knits for baby"

All the clothes are made in Bolivia from baby alpaca wool.  Not only is the wool a soft and luxurious natural fibre but by making the clothes in Bolivia, Oeuf supports the local women artisans who earn a fair income and are able to educate their kids.  If you’re a mama with a penchant for style and all things beautiful, then Oeuf is the place to go.  Oeuf NYC certainly has a special place in my heart and I don’t think it’s difficult to see why.


One lucky reader picked at random will win the ‘wild things’ crown in the colour and size of their choice.  All the colours are pictured above and there are 2 sizes: small (0-4 yrs) and large (4-8 yrs).  You can confirm size and colour once the winner has been picked.
